"Neither lines nor words are ideas, they are the means by which ideas are conveyed."
Sol LeWitt

MAKE/WORK runs March 19 – May 3, 2018
Closing reception Thursday April 26, 6-8p


LAVC Art Gallery is pleased to present MAKE/WORK, an exhibition produced in collaboration with the Los Angeles Valley College student body and five nationally recognized artists. 

Contributors to this project include Roy Dowell, Dahlia Elsayed, Adam D. Miller, Renee Petropoulos, and Robert Yoder. 

Using the wall drawings of Sol LeWitt as a launching off point, MAKE/WORK questions the role of artist and laborer and establishes a scenario where language and interpretation challenge ideas and execution. Five artists have been invited to submit work in the form of directions. Over the course of the exhibition run LAVC students and faculty will produce their works according to the guidelines provided. Ranging from the most highly detailed to the very wide open, the artists’ instructions utilize specific standard measurements, custom stencils, the sun as a mapping device, and the body as ruler.

Viewers will have the opportunity to watch this exhibition unfold over time. Open work sessions will be held for those wishing to take part in the making of these works. These sessions are free and open to all. The completed temporal works will be celebrated with a closing reception Thursday April 26, from 6-8p. A commissioned essay by Los Angeles based writer and critic Travis Diehl will be available as a downloadable pdf from the gallery website.
